@selcal @brownmattb @Thibaut it's basically money laundering at government level. They take tax dollars and funnel them to their private companies instead of investing back into the country. The war machine is a mechanism for stealing money basically.

I'm doing Real Work (TM) today, but I realized I was one commit away from adding the console version to Racktris's master branch. So that bit's merged!

Get it while it's hot:

$ git clone gitlab.com/dustyweb/racktris.g
$ cd racktris
$ racket racktris.rkt -c

The -c is for --console! :)

Tax havens are destroying the earth

bbc.co.uk/news/science-environ

<<Deforestation in the Amazon and widespread illegal fishing have both been linked to tax havens, according to a new study.

Some 68% of the investments tracked in the Amazon came from companies based in countries where no tax is paid.

When it comes to illegal fishing, around 70% of known vessels are registered in tax havens.

Tax avoidance schemes say the authors, are essentially subsidising the destruction of the environment. >>
